I am not sure there's much to tell - I joined the Army at 18 because I wanted the experience I'd need to run for political office. Three deployments and some four duty stations later, that's still the plan.
I am what you'd call a Southern Democrat - that is, socially liberal, pro-gay rights and pro-choice, but also strong on defense and have no use for fringed groups from the left and right. I despise Occupy Wall Street as much as I do abortion clinic protesters. Overall, I think that we need a more mature and analytical approach to politics. The fellow Americans with whom we disagree aren't our enemies. We have a responsibility to listen to and work with them to build a better America.
I am a feminist - but I don't protest or have a picture of Gloria Steneim hanging on the wall or anything (though I did have dinner with her once). I guess you could say I am more of a conservative feminist rather than a progressive one.
As for relationships, I need someone who intellectually satisfies me. If there is no intellectual growth in a relationship, what's the point? For companionship and sex, there is always the bar.
Outside of work, I am also pretty bad at getting to places on time.
I cook a lot - mainly American South (which is not the same thing as South American, mind you), but lately, I've also explored international cuisines.
As for music: Beethoven and Fountains of Wayne - and I am a sucker for oldies and country.
But the one thing I know I would die without is my ambition. What drives me keeps me alive and gives me a purpose. I cannot imagine a life in which I am done chasing goals and ambitions.
I also think about football - although the Miami Dolphins break my damn heart each year. And babies. I think babies are fucking cool.
Oh, and I peed on the street the first time I was in New York City! It was ... cleansing.
